What is a trust fund?
Trust funds are legal arrangements that allow individuals to place assets in a special account to benefit another person or entity. Trust funds can be complex and often used as an estate planning tool. It's used to minimize taxes and avoid probate, which is the legal process used to distribute the assets of a deceased person.
 
How Does it Work?
A Trust Fund is a legal entity that contains assets or property on behalf of a person or organization. Trust Funds are managed by a Trustee, who is named when the Trust is created. Trust Funds can contain money, bank accounts, property, stocks, businesses, heirlooms, and any other investment types. These assets remain in the Trust until certain circumstances are met, at which point they will be distributed to the beneficiaries.
 
There are three parties involved in all trust funds:
 
● The Grantor: This person establishes the trust fund, donates the property (such as cash, stocks, bonds, real estate, art, a private business, or anything else of value) to the fund, and decides the management terms.
 
● The Beneficiary: This is the person for whom the trust fund was established. It's intended that the assets in the trust, though not belonging to the beneficiary, will be managed in a way that will benefit them, as per the specific instructions and rules laid out by the grantor when the trust fund was created.
 
● The Trustee: The trustee, which can be a single individual, an institution, or multiple trusted advisers, is responsible for making sure the trust fund maintains its duties as laid out in the trust documents and according to applicable law. The trustee is often paid a small management fee. Some trusts give responsibility for managing the trust assets to the trustee, while others require the trustee to select qualified investment advisers to handle the money.
 
What is the Benefit of a Trust Fund?
The benefits of a Trust Fund are numerous, but perhaps the biggest perk is the control it provides over the management of your assets. Trust Funds can guarantee that your assets are properly taken care of until your beneficiaries come of age, while also allowing them to avoid probate. In some cases, Trust Funds can even be used to designate funds for certain purposes, such as healthcare or educational costs.
 
If you are the beneficiary of a Trust Fund, the biggest benefit is likely the financial support you will receive. While it can be difficult to think about inheriting anything from a loved one, a Trust Fund can greatly help your financial situation. Trust Funds can also save you the time and emotional labor involved with lengthy probate court proceedings.
 
Types of Trust Funds
The different types of trusts available include testamentary trusts (which are based on a will), living trusts, revocable trusts or irrevocable trusts. While there are many specific types of trust funds, they fall into two main categories:
 
● Revocable: This type of trust is also known as a living trust. These trusts are flexible and can be dissolved. They typically convert to an irrevocable trust on the death of the grantor.
 
● Irrevocable: This trust transfers assets out of the grantor's estate, and it can't be altered once established. This type of trust has more protections from creditors and more tax benefits than a revocable trust.
